Title: Painting with water
Post by: Griffith on June 11, 2009, 07:51:06 PM
This thread, originally the Inn's Gallery by Th3Branded0ne (see next post), has been created, or recreated, for a two purposes; first, to officially announce the brand new Vagabond Inn drawing board (http://www.skullknight.net/forum/vagadraw/index.php)!

That's right, now there's a place to virtually draw with water, or just the water tool, anytime you please. Walter just implemented it tonight so it's still a work in progress, but also did us the honor of making the first entry, so I think we're off to a great start. Anyway, check it out, register, and draw away!

http://www.skullknight.net/forum/vagadraw/index.php


If you're still here, the main purpose of this thread is to create a Vagabond section equivalent to the Creation Station (http://www.skullknight.net/forum/index.php?board=20.0), for people to showcase their artistic talent as it relates to Vagabond, Musashi, eastern culture, or anything really if you feel like putting it here. Drawings, paintings, sculptures, carvings, photoshops, 3D models, recolors, music, whatever you can think of, anything goes! I'm even thinking of showcasing some artwork by Inoue himself, just to get it out there. As a matter of fact, what better way to begin than with a piece by the master himself:

(http://www.skullknight.net/griffith/inoueart.jpg)

I picked this one first because I think it's a nice blend of his of watercolor painting and beautiful ink work, a contrast highlighted in his two Vagabond artbooks, and companion pieces, Water and Sumi, with each focusing on one of these distinctive styles. You can see more of the artbooks here (http://www.e-1day.jp/morning/anniversary/vagabond/), and learn more about them here (http://www.skullknight.net/forum/index.php?topic=9971.msg164776#msg164776).



Now, since nobody should have to follow that up short of Kentarou Miura, I'll go ahead and bite the bullet with the first fan submission, an appropriately humble recolor of Musashi from volume 22, episode 191:

(http://www.skullknight.net/griffith/morningmusashisml.jpg)

Musashi, fittingly, focusing on his "art."

Just some basic photoshop filter effects and sepia tone, oldschool SK.net recolor style.


Anyway, I hope you'll feel inspired by Inoue's artwork to create and contribute something of your own, or at least comment on the works others submit with praise or constructive feedback when appropriate.

Thank you, and looking forward to what we can do!

I thought about this topic so anybody can post art related to Inoue's mangas If it's better in the creation station, would Griff or Walter move it there please.

Well since I"m making keychains most of the time right now. It's just about time I make one for Vagabond as well. Here's the first one. I am also going to try to do some for Slam Dunk and Real later.

Lookin' good!

Great thread, and it's fine in here, I've been meaning to have Vagabond-specific art thread for the Inn (was going to call it "Drawing With Water" =), I just didn't have anything to start it with, so this is perfect. Mind if I add a Vagabond Inn art thread parenthetical to the title?



To add some instant variety and help set the mood, here are some previously posted Vagabond material from other members around the board, starting with a few recolors by Proj and CnC, as well as a tutorial:

Go ahead you can add the parenthesis. I'll be adding more as I buy more wood. In the meantime, just this one has been finished.

Ooh, very cool. Hmmm, maybe we should write Inoue a letter now and we can send him one of those as his "book mark." =)



And to continue the grand opening, and just get these out of the way, I'll trickle out my previously posted Vagabond tributes:

(http://www.skullknight.net/griffith/oneyearsmall.jpg)

One Year, which is what it says in the lower left corner there, is the fanciful idea of Musashi and Guts meeting and testing their skill against each other during their respective one year pilgrimage of the sword; which means during Guts' personal journey after he left the Hawks, and Musashi's musha shugyō (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Musha_shugy%C5%8D) between battles with Yoshioka Denshichiro.

Thank you Slan. Like I said before on my section in the "Creation Station",  these keychains can be yours if anybody wants any of them. I am just making them for practice on my woodworking and also some are for me. So just send me a PM with your address and it'll be on its way to you.

Alright here's another one I'm working on.

It's in volume 11, when Otsu and Jotaro arrive in a lodge and find out the Miyamoto just beat those ronin. They try to capture them, after Jotaro opens his mouth, after Otsu does a self-defense move on one guy and then draws the dagger, just so the men see that it has the Yagyu family crest in it.
OK here's a pic to refresh your memory Walter. :ganishka:

I hesitated about sharing this but what the hell: When I first read this thread's title I read "Drawing with Walter". True story.  :farnese:


Title: Re: Drawing with Water
Post by: Griffith on October 12, 2009, 09:48:39 PM
Here's some strange recolors/wallpapers I did a loooong time ago using different primary colors to represent the characters of Musashi, Kojiro, and Denshichiro. Heh, maybe I was inspired by Andy Warhol or something? Anyway, feel free to interpret them, I'm curious to see what people see or some up with, or if your BS is better than mine. I'll share my intended meanings behind each and their relationships below.


Click each to enlarge.

(http://www.skullknight.net/griffith/musashired.jpg) (http://www.skullknight.net/griffith/musashired.gif)
(http://www.skullknight.net/griffith/kojiroblue.jpg) (http://www.skullknight.net/griffith/kojiroblue.gif)
(http://www.skullknight.net/griffith/denyellow.jpg) (http://www.skullknight.net/griffith/denyellow.gif)

Musashi and Kojiro have an obvious fire/water or hot/cold thing going on, the red in both their images represents blood, in Musashi's case the blood pumping inside him, and the yellow in his background represents the sun, nature, his travels around the countryside, basically the external world as well as his ambition "invincible under the sun", so basically his entire legend. As I mentioned before the deep blue for Kojiro represents water and his affinity for it, but also contrasts his warm and easygoing appearance with the fact that there's cold blooded killer behind it, and the red surrounding him represents that killing. Den's is the most straight forward, the surrounding blue representing a crushing external sadness all around him and the yellow his own internal weakness, which comes full circle to the yellow that's all outside Musashi, which in no way penetrates him. As for their visual relationship, you'll notice the red of Musashi's body flows into the red of Kojiro's background and so on for the blue of Kojiro into Den's background, which again brings us full circle with yellow.

I hesitated about sharing this but what the hell: When I first read this thread's title I read "Drawing with Walter". True story.  :farnese:

Haha, considering I'm introducing Walter's drawing board here, that's not a bad thing! Though it is true, I see "drawing with walter" or think Walter's the last to have posted in here every time I see the thread on the SK.net main board. BTW, with this as the first reply, I'm now definitely going to merge this thread with the Inn's Gallery. =)

Great Idea; Vagabond needs its own place.  Really digging the name, I have to say it's cooler than creation station.  No offense.  :griffnotevil:
Title: Re: Drawing with Water
Post by: Shane on October 13, 2009, 01:06:59 AM
Musashi - Him being red, I see this as I guess his inner demon. He wasn't always the most pleasant person to be around. It could also just be representative of his rash nature.
Kojiro - I see his blue color representing his playfulness and childish demeanor despite the violence he grew up around (which the red represents)
Denischiro (sorry if I spelled that wrong) - To me, yellow conveys the feeling that he's determined yet afraid. Blue gets me thinking he feels isolated, i.e he has to face this fear by himself.

Those are pretty much my initial reactions. Interpreting art was never one of my skills :troll:

Hah, I don't even know how to answer that... lets just say we briefly came up with multiple convoluted scenarios, and it wasn't serious for a moment. For example, I came up with one where Musashi stopped a downswung Dragon Slayer on the tip of his katana, and another where, in the same circumstance, he slapped his palms on both sides of the DS and flipped it right off the island with a flick of his wrists! "No sword." :ganishka:

Needless to say, this wasn't a consensus opinion. :SK:

Hah, and I see what you did there with the title too. I think I'll try changing it to "water" with a lowercase w to avoid the confusion.

There, that's better.



Here's the last of my old stock I think, found it today, nothing special, a very simple photoshop to highlight the cinematic quality of Vagabond's artwork:

Here's a sequel of sorts to the previously posted One Year (http://www.skullknight.net/forum/index.php?topic=10404.msg170722#msg170722), which was a what if meeting between young Guts and Musashi when they were both on their year long journeys of the sword. This one doesn't really have a story idea behind it, just an iconic dream match up between them as they currently are; a little older, a little wiser, and with a lot more miles on their odometers, to say the least. Though, an earlier/alternate draft did appear with some build up in a Gutsfield (http://www.skullknight.net/griffith/gutsfield027.jpg) strip.

Thanks, the challenging thing was integrating Guts' new armor.

Anyway, did a new image in the Oekaki (http://www.skullknight.net/forum/vagadraw/index.php), my first real attempt actually, inspired by the latest episodes and... Punch-Out! (http://4.bp.blogspot.com/_S-BRspXA3hc/SbCnwwWqAnI/AAAAAAAAAFo/wWam0sxwSiM/s320/punch_out_mac.gif)

Ito Ittosai's Punch-Out!

"Don't give up, Mac! Fight!!"

Be sure to check out the Drawing Board for more, and better, oekakis!

Here's my attempt at photoshop with one of the latest pics from Vagabond. I took a class a long time ago, I guess I better put some use to it.

I'm glad you did, I didn't know you were a trained photoshopper! Anyway, I like it, it's different, particularly the combination of some of the techniques you incorporated. I like the color palette too, it reminds me of an old comic book or cartoon. I also think it shows potential, so I hope you'll do more.

Thank you! Here's another one I finished today. The first two I did with photoshop, and the last one with a free program I downloaded to my laptop since photoshop is in my desktop. I was mostly just messing with the last picture just to see what it could do. It seems good enough for a free program. It's called Photo Pos Pro if you want to get it at www.download.com (http://www.download.com).

I really like that one, it looks especially good at half size (http://www.skullknight.net/griffith/itobranded.jpg) where you can really take in the overall image, at least on my monitor. The second just seems to be the same image with a radial blur added? Anyway, that free program looks interesting, like it has some similar features to photoshop for people that don't have it.

Yeah, the second picture is the same just with the radial blur filter on it. That program is nice enough if you just want to do some coloring like I tried. I just dind't put much time into it. Oh and I drew a new pic on the Vagadraw section.

Don't worry about it, I thought it was good, and it made me laugh. :badbone:



Anyway, there's always been something about Ittosai I could never quite put my finger on... wait, I've got it!

You totally called it!! Mushi in the fields, tending to his crops.

EDIT:

Alright, so this took about 40 minutes and was drawing after a long long time. I used to draw a lot till 10 grade and then stopped, would doodle deathmetal/ blackmetal band logos and what not in college heh. These days, I get a chance to doodle once in a while when I send out post-cards. I mess all of them up though ahahahaha and you'll see that with this one too. So I wet my brush in sumi ink (dried up =_= I need a new bottle) and got to it. I don't have the patience to sketch first n then go over it, I just go for it and mistakes are unfixable.

I picked this angle and I'll explain why or you'll see the big booboo ...

SO THERE :judo: I screwed up his nose and his chin. It looks fine if I put my thumb on the tip of his nose, imagining it was not as jutted out, same goes for his chin, it doesn't look like Takehiko's Mushi.

(http://i1230.photobucket.com/albums/ee500/Piraancantation/20130128_233044.jpg)

Buuuuuuuuuuuuut, I like it this way hahaha ... so deceptive, on one hand above it looks so wrong and then a snapshot of just the nose n up looks slightly better no?

I need to draw more and get some practice in.

Not exactly water but couldn't find another place to post about this.

Found this portrait of Musashi online by Qi Sheng Luo using Maya, Vray, Zbrush, Mudbox. I like the first image a lot, wish it didn't have that sort of grid on it.
